opportunity for americans. at a time when our deficit has been cut in half, it enables us to meet our obligations to future generations without a mountain of debt. this adheres to the spending principles members of both houses and both parties agreed to. it also builds on that progress with what we are calling an opportunity, growth, and security initiative, that invests in our economic priorities in a smart way that is fully paid for by making smart spending cuts and closing tax loopholes that right now only benefit the well-off and well-connected. i will give you an example. right now our tax system provides benefits to wealthy individuals who save, even after they have amassed multimillion dollar retirement accounts. by closing that loophole, we can help create jobs and grow the economy, and expand opportunity without adding a dime to the deficit. we know the country that wins the race for new technology will win the race for new jobs, so this budget creates 45 high-tech manufacturing hubs where businesses and universities will partner to turn groundbreaking research into new indus

even further into record territory. >>> the treasury department says the country's budget deficit dropped to its lowest level in six years, during 2013. the federal deficit was $680 billion in the last fiscal year. that's down from about $1.1 trillion the previous year. cnn global economic analyst, managing editor of "time" magazine. so it's a dramatic -- about 15% drop in the deficit, which is still high, but a lot less than it used to be. what happened? >> well, in short, the country's growing again. we have been in a recovery for the last year. hasn't felt like one to a lot of people, but growing your way out of a deficit is always the best way to do it. that happened during the boom period of the clinton years, what a lot of people have been hoping would happen once we got past the fiscal headwinds in washington, that we get back on a growth path. what's interesting, though, there is actually a cbo study out looking at the longer term impact on budget deficits. and we have to keep growing faster in order to keep it down. we go back to a 2% economy, those numbers will tick righ
this bill would have increased the deficit. if you can run a deficit to go to war, you can run a deficit to take care of the people who fought in it. joining me is the chair of the senate committee on affairs, the senator from vermont. they said the multi-billion dollar bills face to make necessary reforms. what do you say to that? >> i say they're dead wrong and so does virtually every veterans organization in the country representing millions of veterans. chris, what i have learned since i've been chairman of the veterans committee is the cost of war is much deeper and more significant than i think most people know. we're talking about hundreds of thousands of young men and women coming back from iraq and afghanistan with ptsd and tbi. we're talking about 2,300 of you're soldiers who suffered wounds so that they're unable too have babies. we're talking in terms of older veterans, you have women, wives staying home taking care of disabled vets, 24 hours a day, seven days a week who get virtually no kinds of support from the federal government. you're talking about young people who were

, don't be my friend. >> easily defensible. >> another stimulus plan. more debt, higher deficits, rob our children blind and you're all in support of it? >> it's not that i'm in support of it let's talk about what it really is. the numbers already been decided. that was the whole partisan thing that happened a few months ago, what we're going to quick et over is how that money's going to be divided. >> we're going to gut defense. >> you may have heard that it's an election year. is it at all possible that this is an election budget that every one of us knows is never going through? >> we're going to rob our children? >> no, we're not. >> it's not going to happen. >> you know it's not going to happen. >> it's an election year. fudge it. >> i concede the point counselor. >> good night, folks. >> i concede that point, it's not going to happen, the fact that he wants it. didn't we learn? sl. >> he doesn't want it, congress wants it. >> everyone in congress has to run in november, it's a democratic budget p. >> why do they waste our time in. >> that's how politics works. you don't think th

security is our deficits, our debt. it's going to crowd out other spending. it threatens our economic viability, our growth potential, and it actually places us at risk for some financial crisis in the years to come. so i -- our voters deserve better. and look at how they tend to maneuver this legislation. it's just so absurd sometimes. we should laugh about it if it weren't so serious, and it is serious. the sanders bill, the veterans' bill that we are being told we must vote for or they will accuse us of being unkind and unsupportive and unsympathetic to our veterans. that day's over. we're not going to be intimidated on this. we're going to do the right thing for veterans and america. this bill would exceed the spending limits for the current fiscal year that congress and other -- and the president agreed to just three months ago. initially -- and it gets worse in the outer years, it would clearly add another $260 million in mandatory spending and authorize another $182 million this year, fiscal year 2014 we're already in, $182 million. and it gets worse. so we agreed in 2011, augu
of people felt was ungovernable, chiefly because of the budget deficit and now there's a surplus. is there a national leadership lesson that california provide? >> you've got to be tough on spending. at the end of the day, fiscal discipline is the fundamental predicate of a free society. and you just have to maintain that. secondly, you do have to find a way to create a governing consensus or coalition. in california, we do have a majority democratic party. and we don't have the any constitutional blocking points like the 60-vote requirement in the senate or the division of parties in the house between the house and the senate. >> it is interesting, is there a lesson for president obama no matter how liberal you are, you said, here the president's about to present a budget where he's saying look, the deficits are coming down for now. we've got to spend more. we're only going to get the economy going in a meaningful way if we spend more on infrastructure and the loo i can. >> yeah, spend more but in the framework of adjusting your long-term liabilities so we're in balance. so that
not a wit of care to the working and unemployed. they talk about obsessions with deficits and debt. and then they refuse to raise revenue in any form or fashion. >> advertisement reform with the chained cpi last year. they don't back him when he is trying to do what they say they want to do. >> they predicate their position on ignorance. and nobody actually calling them out. i mean, the sound that you played at the beginning of this segment, that's the -- that's all you need to know about the republican party. on the one hand, on the other hand. and in the meantime, if you ever ask them for a meaningful piece of policy, of governable policy, they have nothing. >> you know the guy's running around a big arena, trying to get to the farthest right. well, they always want to be the hardest rail to the right. take a look at lindsey graham here, who seems oftentimes a reasonable guy, but he is so scared of looking reasonable because it will get him killed in south carolina. on twitter he wrote today, isn't it original? it started with benghazi. when you kill americans and nobody pays a p

a real deficit. he let putin bring him down the garden path on syria, a country that was supposed to have given up all its kemic am weapons by february but has only given up 11% of them. what accountability have we heard demanded by the president. whether it's ukraine, china, syria, where wherever we see him, he just doesn't have what it takes to be taken seriously by foreign leaders. >> is he credible? what do you think? >> i think he's more than credible. for example, if you go back and look at 208 when russia went into georgia, we did nothing. that was at the height of our involvement in iraq and afghanistan. he's got the international community to put sanctions. these aren't going to be the treasury. these have to be international sanctions. nobody, even the harshest critic, wants to put boots on the ground. >> let me give you an example of why i think the credibility thing is a little bit tricky. look at what the president said at one point today. it's remarkable. >> one thing right away is to work with the administration to help buy assistance to the ukrainians to the people and tha
house can work together to improve the bottom loin when it comes to deficits and spending and taxes and cutting? well, i've read that senator patti murray said the senate will not produce a budget in response to the president's proposal. .i've read that the president's budget is going to largely ignore some of the common ground to fix entitlement programs and the like and be more of a gain document that he and his fellow democrats can run on in november. that's a terrible disservice. this country continues to spend a lot more money than we're bringing in the door. debt continues to rack up. medicare and social security continue to be on an unsustainable path. and the president, the person who is supposed to be in charge of the executive branch of government continues to campaign. but he's not going to be on the battle again. so to say it's a disappointment is a profound understatement. >> all right. senator john cornyn, sir, thank you for your time today. >> thanks, shannon. >>> the situation in ukraine developing minutes by minutes. russian soldiers we're told are now surrounding a

[laughter] i mean -- is what you are saying is there is no such thing as an average cell for solitary? typically, in the bureau of prisons, if someone is in solitary confinement, how big is the cell typically? >> the average size should be equivalent to six by four. >> okay, that is enhanced there. six by four. does a person and -- in t

a dime to the deficit. >> the president also wants to expand the earned income tax credit for the working poor without children. his budget would also expand the child and dependent care tax credit and create automatic iras to help workers save for retirement but it's unlikely those plans will get through congress. he needs legislation to enact all of that and that does not look likely. >>> global markets are rebounding today as investors digest the situation in ukraine. even the dow jones flew out of the gate this morning. alison kosik is over at the new york stock exchange. how much have we bounced back today? >> quite a bit. what a difference a day makes. even the s&p 500 at a record high. the dow up 200 points, 205 points. all 30 stocks in the dow are in the green. very different story yesterday. it was a sea of red. we also saw that turn-around happening overseas, all the way -- there were those down arrows we saw yesterday in europe, asia, russia, they all turned up today. analysts say investors today aren't on red alert. it's not such a dire situation. i think when putin spoke and

progress made. if we just take a year in review. so, a year in review, in terms of deficit reductions. when the budget came out last year, it was predicted $1.1 trillion. it was 680 in the end. about a $400 billion deficit reduction from 2012 to 2013. then, we have a situation where i think hopefully we've broken the fever on the issues of having conversations about default. >> money that's overseas. are there efforts to bring money overseas permanently back to the states? >> it depends on how one is talking about that. we want to create a system that is clear and that is helpful for our companies to know what they're doing, how they're doing. and not discourage investments from coming back and finances from coming back to the u.s. >> tell me about going from bettenville, arkansas, in the private sector, back to the government. >> walmart is an institution of execution. that is what it is certainly known for. and fortunate to spend time and to be there. coming back to the federal government, certainly, as you reflected, one has to work and work on both sides of the aisle. i go up and down t
in new tax. he cuts the military greatly in my opinion not for deficit reduction but for more domestic spending. it just shows the priorities have moved farther to the left and the point i'm trying to make here we have three years left of this administration and we have divided government. normally in a situation like that you would try to fine common ground, work forward common ground. he's moving away from that and tacked hard to the left. yes you could say that's because we're in an election year and that may be why. it's happening nevertheless. i don't know the reasons but he's moving to the left and it makes it hard to bridge to the gap. >> democrats will say they have tried to extend a hand and have not been reciprocated. >> we have a budget agreement. i want to see us build on that success. >> give me a preview of what the paul ryan budget will look like. in years past a lot of the saving have come from overhauling medicare and medicaid. are those proposals include in the paul ryan 2015 budget. >> those programs are going bankrupt and need to be restored, need to be solvent beli

debt, not vets. with $17 trillion in debt and massive annual deficits, our country faces a fiscal crisis of unparalleled scope. now is not the time in any federal department to spend money we don't have. to be sure, there's much to like in the sashed sanders bill and e components were presented as separate, smaller as part of a carefully considered long-term strategy to reform the v.a., hold leadership accountable and improve service to veterans, we'd have no problem expending enthusiastic support. as with many bloated legislative projects in today's washington, the overreaching and overpromising in this bill will only lead to disappointment and recriminations as the high cost and unanticipated consequences are revealed. that will be followed by demands for an entirely new round of comprehensive reforms and the cycle will begin anew. congress should go back to the drawing board, assume a more modest approach and take up these proposals on an individual basis. that's the better path to achieving enduring and effective reform and accountability for the services we provide to our vet
